Default power steering fluid change?

My dealer recommended a "fluid exchange" for my Accord. The car has 80,000 miles. I found nothing in the manual about powersteering fluid other than to make sure "it's up to the line" in the reservoir. Do I need to change it or is the dealer trying to sell me something.

Thanks
mm

Why would you think the Honda manual would omit the need to change the
fluid if it needs changing?

1. why are you asking this question again? you already got answers when
you asked it last monday.

2. as so succinctly stated by the other poster, why do you think it
needs changing if the manual doesn't tell you it needs it? the manual
is authoritative, the dealer's service writer is not.

bottom line, power steering systems are very expensive to screw up.
there is a very strong negative correlation between failure and
"maintenance" on honda power steering systems. leave it alone.
